The American Cancer Society and the Memorial Blood Center teamed up for the Kolar Toyota Blood Drive on Saturday.

The event first started when the general manager of Kolar Toyota wanted to help two nonprofit organizations at the same time, so for each donor who registered on Saturday, Kolar gave $25 to the American Cancer Society. That money will then go towards the Duluth Relay for Life. The recruiter with Memorial Blood Center, Michele Keil, says summer is a really hard time for them to get enough donors, so events like these really help.

"We've found it to be very successful and generally we have a really good turnout, so it's great," said Keil.
